We are back!

Oh, you thought just because I took a couple of days off from ranking NFL players that I was done and throwing in the towel? Not so fast my friends.

I don’t know if you guys are aware of this, but it’s A LOT of work to rank every single starter in the NFL. It takes hours of research. It’s mentally draining for me sometimes to remember how these guys performed months ago and trust me when I say, I’m not just throwing toilet paper on the wall and hoping it sticks. I put some hard work into these things and I appreciate all the clicks you guys give me.

With that said, it’s time to get back to work. Today, we are taking a look at the starting outside linebackers currently playing in a 4-3 scheme.

As always, depth charts are from RotoWorld.com. They are the best in the business as far as updated depth charts are concerned. And just a friendly reminder, rookies and guys who were injured last year are always ranked last. It’s a power rankings people. That’s how it works.
